oops forgot our day crosscountry skiing
Well, for some reason I skipped our day of cross country skiing in Yellowstone. Unforgiveable.
The 17th was actually the day we reserved to head into the park on skis. We rented a couple of pairs of skis and headed 20 miles north of West Yellowstone to a high pass into the park, tossed on the skis and off we went. This was a learning experience for Dennis, since he had never been out in deep powder on cross country skis before. Fortunately there had been one person ahead of us, so the path was at least broken for us, if not really tracked yet. We brought some lunch with us so after about 3.5 miles of effort we stopped for a nice lunch and then headed on back. This was another beautiful day, if only sporadically sunny and I didn’t stop for too many pictures but I will show you what I took.
